The Drake Relays have been a part of my life ever since I was a middle schooler. It just took me a little longer to finally hit my stride. Twice I got beat out and missed the oppurtunity to run in the shuttle relay that they conduct on the infield of the big blue oval. Having been beat by a hair and vowing never to be an "alternate" again my luck soon turned around.
Middle School... that was one thing, High School I never had to be an alternate again. I was blessed to have very successful races and relays from freshman year to senior year. The blessings continued into college as I got to "come home" to run on the big blue oval for ISU!
I hope everyone has a great Drake Realys weekend!
Here is just one of many reasons I love the sport: Inspiring Run
Good luck to all the runners, jumpers and throwers and let's play track!
Until next time...
look good, do good, feel good
